People with mobility difficulties will often choose to use a wheelchair when moving around their home and community. Wheelchairs that are correctly fitted to the shape and size of the user can provide comfort, improve sitting posture and protect skin.
Everyday Independence has a specialised wheelchair and seating clinic where people can attend for a comprehensive assessment and trial of different solutions. Will Kelly had a new wheelchair prescribed by Everyday Independence recently, “I couldn’t believe the difference a customised wheelchair would have on my life,” says Will. Bridie Telford, an occupational therapist working at Everyday Independence states, “The benefits of the seating clinic are to improve our clients comfort and posture, and maximise everyday functioning.”
